STATUTORY EXCLUSION OF GAYS IN INDIA


 
But the law has not changed for 145 years. Brought in under the British rule, the legal system only recognises gay and lesbian relationships "as an unnatural offence".
 
Ironically India has a long tradition of non-heterosexual relationships.

There is evidence of it in its literature, the arts and ancient texts that date back thousands of years. Modern day India though still refuses to legalise homosexuality.

 

Comment: One does not have to dig deep into the archives of ancient Indian literature to find this evidence of social inclusion and equality through diversity. It is present in the most venerated Mahabharata if one is able to do critical analysis and verbal reasoning of the original Sanskrit (Samskrit) script.

These laws were brought in by British Baboos who were unable to integrate  with or accept the socially, religiously, and sexually inclusive and well advanced Indian society they found.

The Brown Baboos (Indians) have upheld these archaic laws as if they were divine disseminations.

It is time the Indian Government and especially the voting citizens woke up and demanded their rights without fear or favour.

    Here in the UK Civil Partnerships Act became legal on 5 December 2005 (on the 35th Anniversary of my arrival in the UK)
     
    Within Camden Council’s Social Housing where I work, I have been instrumental in identifying innumerable failings within our policies, procedures and processes and negotiating appropriate changes to the policies delivering equality-led and diversity-led benefits to those otherwise excluded. For instance:
    (1) Camden’s original policy on rehousing those facing irretrievable breakdown in family relationship catered only for those heterosexual couples with children. I had this unfair and unjust policy amended to include those families that could not or chose not to have children including heterosexual and especially gay and lesbian partners. This was done in early 1980s
